As a result of his isolation and lack of space, Billy stands for hours in a corner of his enclosure, as far from zoo visitors as he can get, swaying and bobbing his head. According to Dr. Gay Bradshaw and Dr. Lori Marino: "Billy's head bobbing is consistent with severe mental and emotional distress documented in caged animals and imprisoned humans."
